At One to stage charity gospel concert

Date Posted: 2003-03-15

A local gospel group wants to stage a charity gospel concert on Okinawa, with the proceeds going to local orphanages. dathan Boyd, leader of At One gospel group, says one of the main purposes for this event is evangelism. "We have been compelled to go out and teach the world about God's love" Boyd says. “Love has no language, but radiates. It is time for those of us living the Christian Lifestyle to radiate God's love on this island.” Boyd notes that “…the church has been afraid to leave its comfort zone. For so long the church has been showing love on the inside of a building, but sometimes we forget that we are the church, and we fail to extend love outside of the building.”

Boyd explains that “Jesus did not come for the well, but for the sick and broken hearted. He went to those places the broken dwelled. When he walked into a room, he changed the atmosphere.” And therein lies Boyd’s mission. The group has been performing at a local night spot, but everything wasn’t what he expected.

“I made a mistake by setting boundaries on who could come listen to At One sing at the Pub Lounge, Boyd said. “I got wrapped up in religious tradition. No smoking or drinking is what I said to people coming to hear At One sing. Then I remembered our purpose for creating a gospel night, which is to reach people of all walks of life. We are not trying to reach those who are already saved.”

At One is a group that changes the atmosphere when they enter a room. Created to sing God's love through song, their purpose is to leave God's impression on the lives of people. Through music, boundaries and barriers are destroyed.

"This is the reason I want to do a charity concert", says Boyd. "Military and host nation relations would be so much better if we based the relationship on love." Anyone wanting to help At One with this concert can call Dathan Boyd at 090-1945-5461.
